From Checkpoint, 5:09 pm on 14 November 2019

The man accused of murdering Grace Millane told the police he sobbed and vomited as he put her body into a suitcase the day after she died in his apartment.

Video footage of the 27-year-old man's second police interview has been played to the jury today as his trial in the High Court in Auckland continues.

In the interview, the accused breaks down as he backtracks on his initial story - admitting he buried Ms Millane's body in a shallow grave in the Waitakere Ranges.

RNZ reporter Sarah Robson is covering the case and filed this story.
